  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Heat oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Add tomato and tomato paste, and cook until thickened, stirring continuously.
  3. Combine ground cashews, cheese, breadcrumbs, rosemary, chives and onion mixture in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Layer pastry sheets together, brushing each sheet with olive oil. Place filling down one long side of pastry, leaving a 5cm border at ends. Roll up, folding in sides to enclose filling. Place on a lightly greased oven tray. Brush with extra olive oil and sprinkle poppy and sesame seeds on top.

  6. Serve with a chutney or Greek yoghurt mixed with mint.
